THANK YOU TO OUR AMAZING SPONSORS
“Countdown is delighted to support this year’s Grocery Charity Ball in support of Motor Neurone New Zealand.
Motor Neurone is a devastating disease. The work of Motor Neurone Disease New Zealand to support people living with the disease and their families is invaluable and we know funds raised through this event will make a real difference.
The Grocery Charity Ball is always a fun night out and a great opportunity to give back to incredible organisations such as Motor Neurone Disease New Zealand. I hope to see you there.”
— NATALIE DAVIS, MANAGING DIRECTOR, COUNTDOWN
“The annual Grocery Charity Ball is one of the highlights of the year for Foodstuffs New Zealand and provides us with yet another way to support everyday New Zealanders. This is an opportunity for the grocery industry to come together and raise funds which go right back into the communities which support our supermarkets up and down New Zealand every day.
This year our efforts will help Motor Neurone Disease New Zealand work smarter and deliver more support to those living with the condition, their families and carers; including health professionals and service providers. Funds raised will help launch an online Support Forum, an MND app, video guides on how to best access funding, use adaptive tools and ‘tips and tricks’ for living with MND. It will also provide technology to enable Skype support and advocacy across New Zealand.
MND can have a devastating impact on family, carers and friends, and it’s estimated that for each person with the condition, this service offers support to at least seven additional people. The more empowered the family, the better the outcome and quality of life for those involved.
I hope you will join us at this year’s ball, encourage your colleagues to attend and together we can improve the quality of life and support for people living with this debilitating condition.”
— STEVE ANDERSON, MANAGING DIRECTOR, FOODSTUFFS NZ LIMITED
“The New Zealand Food and Grocery Council is proud to support The Grocery Charity Ball and are looking forward to another spectacular evening, a highlight in the industry’s social calendar.
Congratulations to this year’s beneficiary, MND (Motor Neurone Disease) New Zealand, who meet the needs of people living with MND, their families and carers. The organisation has connections to multiple services enabling help for people at the various stages of MND, in turn making a substantial difference to individual needs.”
